Timothy J. LaPorto, of Plainville, CT passed away unexpectedly, Saturday, March 7, 2020 at the young age of 56. Tim was a long time resident of Plainville but was initially a native of New Britain. He is deeply loved by his family and close friends and will be missed by many. Tim had always been a spiritual man and truly looked forward to his reunion with the Lord, which brings comfort to those who are closest to him. He was highly intelligent, artistic and gifted in many ways. Tim had a beautiful voice and could touch one’s soul with a gentle song. He was a deep thinker and conversations with Tim were always interesting and fun. His quick wit and on point perception made you feel engaged and easily brought to laughter! Tim often shared his spiritual knowledge with others in hopes of helping them find guidance, hope and comfort. He wholeheartedly sympathized with the struggles of others and often gave even when he had nothing to give. Tim was a gifted writer and utilized his biblical knowledge to create two screenplays. He was a talented mason and impressed many with his works of art. Tim has left many memorable imprints on the lives around him and in the paths of those that he has crossed.
Tim is survived by his loving brothers and sisters Nancy (Steven) Lukasik, Frank (Maria) LaPorto, Jr., Michelle (Carlos) Prieto and Jeffrey (Pamela) LaPorto. Tim also leaves behind many nieces, nephews, aunts, uncles, cousins and friends with whom he held very dearly. Tim was predeceased by his loving parents Sherry Chesnut LaPorto and Frank S. LaPorto, Sr. It is with happiness that we ask all to come and rejoice in knowing that Tim is now at peace and reunited with the Lord.
A Celebration of Tim’s life will be held Friday, March 13, 2020 at 4 p.m. from the Paul A. Shaker Funeral Home, 764 Farmington Ave., New Britain, CT. Burial will be private.

My heart was sadden over your loss and I wanted to send my warmest condolences to the family. To lose a loved one, a part of your life, can bring such overwhelming grief but the God of all comfort tells us at 2 Kings 20:5 he hears our prayers, he sees our tears, and he feels our pain. At we can read John 5:28, 29 that you will have him in your life once again. May all the sweet memories you have give you calm and peace to help you through the dark moments until God’s promises come true. Again so very sorry for your heartache.
